The African Waistbead: Meaning, Significance and Uses
My history with Waistbeads
I made my first strand of Waistbeads in 2009. I then began making custom strands to order. I had my very first Waistbeading Party at my Fells Point studio (The Portal Moonlodge Temple) for my birthday in 2011. I was also selling wrapskirts out of a beautiful Ghanaian basket that I would carry around; such a Marketplace Woman 💖. Anyway as time went on I left the country to travel abroad, where I would soon experience many trials and challenges which lead me on a course away from keeping up with my purpose work. So my jewelry making, marketplace and Holistic practitioner life was largely sporadic for roughly 5 years 😱... Well I’m back now and in full effect. I’m grateful for all that has been my life, for the lessons and for the love, beauty, clarity and empowerment I’m experiencing on the other side.

The Flow of AfroGoddess Waistbeading Parties
✨The Welcome and Womb Meditation✨
We gather in the “Womb Room” (my Treatment Room) and begin with a beautiful Womb Meditation ( guided by Iya Kenyatta OsunRemilekun at this particular one). The space is beautifully candlelit and we each connect with our Primal Center. I really appreciate how from the door there is warmth and welcoming among the Women who were strangers, but soon became “related”
The Menu: Vegan Yumminess
We then migrate to the Beading Sanctuary where I have a lovely spread prepared for my guests including: Kale Salad, Cheesey Herb Pasta, Hummus and chips, Sugar snap peas and Pico de Galo and Strawberries and Pears. And let me not forget my famous “Shrine Punch” 😉
The Set Up: The Beading Chamber
Let the fun begin!
Our Love talk topics include but are not limited to:

We chat, listen to music and sing along, dance and snack all while making our beautiful creations.
Everyone makes at least two strands.
